    That is absolutely awesome. I mean it is actually possible to knock some one out with sound for about 8 seconds, swat teams carry sound bombs for that purpose, as a non-lethal weapon.
    When he rang the bell with his voice I believed it.

    I noticed that aswell, and the bell seemed to make the nosie before he yelled.

    Also, does this video end before he can stomp at the corner for anyone else?

    there may be some scietific evidence to support his claim

    As you can see he moves his foot first. And he talkes about the muscles. That is the key to it


    When he puts his foot down and moves his body it is an eleastic collision, which means that there is a transfer of energy. So by trasnfering all the energy from his muscles to his voice, it might work

    think of it as a rubber band. if you dont stretch it out it wont have an effect. BUt if you stretch it out to its maximum potential it is devistating

    To the people saying "HE STOMPED HIS FOOT BEFORE HE YELLED AT THE BELL FAKE FAKE FAKE"

    Okay, if what you say is true, then he can direct the force of his stomp through that bamboo floor, up that wooden desk and into the bell and then have it ring pretty loud, which is actually more impressive than just yelling at it. Great job on proving yourselves wrong.

    I really don`t know how to spell it but the word he was using to describe the martial art is Japanese for shout.

    Figures really.

    And whether it`s real or not, it was on a major tv station, so if it`s a hoax it`s a pretty good one.

    The term you`re looking for is ki-ai. It`s indeed the word for shout, like when performing a kata (imaginary fight) in karate, at usually two moments in the kata, you are supposed to use ki-ai. But it`s not to stun people, it`s just because it aids the "energy release", hence ideally producing a more powerful blow. And of course, it can be used to scare bad guys away.

    thanks ZoKtorR

    When I used to do Karate, we were also taught that the ki-ai gets rid of the air in the lungs, making it more difficult to get winded. Apparently you can`t get the breath knocked out of you `cause there`s no breath in there.

    It doesn`t work though. You might be a bit `less` winded but a punch in the ribs is gonna hurt either way.

    I can`t knock what I was taught, quite a bit was about pressure points and critical nerves. We were taught where to strike to inflict the most pain and/or damage, as well as the quickest ways to get someone off you. A broken nose might piss them off, while a strike to the carotid artery will drop them like a stone and it`s information that I`ve found useful. It`s just, don`t shout like it`ll offer protection `cause it won`t.

    Aha, yeah scaring them away, it`s for that as well, makes you look more like a nutter. :D

    It could be real. The Shaolin monks in China used to have this "lion roar" thing that was able to knock enemies out, according to legend. It was lost when the Mongolians burnt down their temple in the 14th century.

    I call BS. Yes, you can make sound reverberate, which is why the bell rang when he yelled. But there`s no way you`re killing birds, or taking down an opponent with your voice. The guy he was fighting started kneeling before he even yelled.

    Ki-ai expression is more about getting your adrenaline pumped up, and forcing oxygen into your body. It forces you to breath in, thus you do indeed have "wind" in your lungs. The expelling of air from your body just gives your torso muscles the contraction necessary for warding off much of the pain perceived during a received strike.

    I believe this guy. While I`m not sure about the knock-out, yelling can definitely make someone fall to their knees. It`s the same effect when you hit a gong next to someone. They are going to fall to their knees and cover their ears.

    He reminds me of a sub we had. He would do a "Karate Yell" by request of us. He tells the same story that his friend almost got mugged in NYC and then he did the yell and the muggers got scared and left...

    You know, if he was able to knock people out by the sound of his voice, wouldn`t he knock himself out? Hmm??? I mean, if this works, it would be by a mechanism similar to pressure points, which you cannot condition yourself against.

    Ummm... no. You know about sound waves? They travel through matter out from the origin, as a smaller circle getting progressively larger. Think of dropping a rock in the lake. Now, since that`s the case, the waves will INVARIABLY reach the bell no matter where it is. No need to "direct the force of his stomp". The sound energy will travel out in all directions, vibrate the floor, table, and then the bell. If he had bells all around him, they would all be ringing at the same time. No need to direct force.

    I think that people seem to underestimate the power of sound waves. I’m not saying that this guy is or isn`t legit, but considering that some military forces have been researching sonic weapons to suppress or even kill enemies, I’d say that the power of sound deserves a bit more respect. Think of it this way, light can be pretty harmless but if you intensify and focus it enough you can use it to burn through steel or even diamonds.

    My original point still stands though. Sound can do amazing things. But, if he was able to directly affect his opponents brains by the power of his voice, he would be doing more damage to himself. To reach his opponents, the sound would be muffled somewhat because it has to travel through the air. But, there is also internal canals between our mouth+nose and behind our eardrum (used to pressurize the ears). This is a direct line from our mouths to our brain, so any damage he may be able to do to his opponents, he will be doing more to himself.

    possible to knock some one out with sound, swat teams carry sound bombs for that purpose.

    You cant knock someone out with your voice, no matter how much you stretch. Sound incapacitation devices produce sounds in the multiple hundreds of decibel range, which is enough to kill someone in even short bursts, but in near instantanios bursts will simply cause pain and or concussion. A common NFDD is the M84 which produces nearly 200 decibels. (It also procuces a 5 or so million candella flash which is apparently hotter than the surface of the sun for an instant, though Im not sure of the validity of that)

    There are a lot of crazy fighting styles that are actually true but hard to believe. This is one of them.

    Im afraid not, the ones that are hard to believe simply dont work, there is a video of an MMA fighter in a competition match vs a fighter using this style (IIRC) floating around youtube. Have a look.

    When he rang the bell with his voice I believed it

    Im afraid thats not necasarily true, if you went to his `dojo` and screamed at the bell it would ring for you also. Its about the resonance of the material and the interaction of the sound waves, someone more knowledgable would be better to describe it. Suffice to say the bell`s design and material are the main reason for his voice making it reverberate.

    It`s the same effect when you hit a gong next to someone. They are going to fall to their knees and cover their ears.

    They arent falling to thier knees because the sound is making them, they are doing it as its an instinctive reaction to pain `make yourself small as you can`

    And watch the video, the swordsman starts to `pass out` even before he stamps, never mind screams. Its something called conditioning, you are trained in traditional martial arts practice to help your training partner, and eventually you do it without thinking. Taken to extremes it can cause effects like this (e.g you know his next technique is supposed to knock you out so when he does it you pretent to pass out (or actually do in some cases)) That is why you never see him try it on any non students, e.g the cameraman.

    It would be funny if he was a fake and he tried to fight a real sword dude. He would do his girly shriek and the other dude would kill him....hehe .........I like bloody humor.....:-)

    that guy wasnt knocked out though, he was just weakened abit. he didnt exactly faint or anything.
    i find this quite believable, alot of martial arts look phenomenal, but they do usually have some form of physics backing them up. and lots of practise

    About 90 decibels is dangerous for the human ear. The loudest human scream ever recorded was 128 decibels. However, it would only hurt their ears. There is no way it could stun somebody. This is totally staged.
